Spyro the Dragon the film?!

Spyro.jpgWhat in god's name is going on? Spyro the Dragon is the next game making a big screen appearance, and I can't imagine why.

Actually I can see why this videogame would make a film adaptation, the cute factor. The studio's will be drooling over the young audience for this.

Appropriately Steve and Dan Altiere will write the script, they wrote the script for Dr. Dolittle 4, so don't expect that much. According to Variety it's also going to be 3-D and presumably all CGI too. The film will be based on the recent release of Legend of Spyro.

Spyro the Dragon is a young dragon who has to navigate his world and find dragon eggs and release the captured dragons of the realm. Your standard platform game but Spyro could fly a little, breathe fire, and barge into thing enemies.

Something that made the game particularly special was the music, created by Stewart Copeland of the Police (the band, not the service!) and the creator of the Equalizer television show theme!

Although I did originally think that this idea was scraping the bottom of the videogame barrel, I could see it really working for young kids. Mind you if they are going to do this rubbish, can't we get some decent ones? Metal Gear Solid?

oh goodness...lol..I'm so glad my daughter is now 11yrs old and growing out of the desire to see the "cute" films.

SPYRO THE DRAGON MOVIE FOR KIDS (PLUS OTHER VIDEO GAME MOVIE FEATURES).

So Hollywood and game creators who are working on the Spyro The Dragon 3D CGI film well as long as the
story follows to the game then it will be all right as G rated movie for young children who ever plays the games.
I'm not really into these games but I just read articles on the stories and write them down.
There is other VG movies going around like Onimusha with Christophe Gans as the film director and Takeshi Kaneshiro to star and the screenplay will be done by the Japanese screenwriters who write the script for the first Onimusha game which the story will follow to the Onimusha Warlords game and the cast and crew will be all Chinese and Japanese,Metal Gear Solid is still in development and Sony will still work on the project also Silent Hill sequel is in works by Samuel Hadida also will be working on Return To Castle Wolfenstein with Silent Hill team member Roger Avary.
Thank You.
